B-Side by Mykola31 B-Side by Mykola31
Inspired by: DJ Shadow Presents Schoolhouse Funk, Lootpack - New Year Resolution (1999), Run DMC - They Call Us Run DMC (1989)

I have absolutely no idea why I woke up with a thought of drawing a life-sized pixel audiotape, but hey :D.. So here it is.
I actually like the way it looks, wonder what you people think :D

Holy crap, a DD! Thank you halfliquid for featuring this :D Guess I gotta work even harder now to not disappoint :)..
It really caught me off guard :)

Thank you all people for your comments, special thanks to my friends, you know who you are :D.
And stop being too kind to me :D I'm most afraid in my life of becoming bigheaded :D

Aww man, that's fantastic. Besides being amazingly done and one of the most representative pure-pixel art I've seen, cassettes still totally r0xx0r. :D

saw this on threadless...it's some real good pixel art...your placement on threadless could use work, tho.

Thanks, but what exactly do you mean :D? As in work, what do you think I could improve... Or do you think I should have added something extra?

Oh well, the shirt scored real bad at TL anyway, so... :D

it has some major potential on threadless.

if you played with placement and colour..it'd prob'ly do better.:love:
Reply
:iconmykola31:
Mykola31 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2006
the score's out, less than two, something like 1.94 so :D... It's hard to guess what people on TL want, and besides it wasn't even made specifically for them, so I'm not very upset :)

well..that's good..i mean..it was lacking..but still had potential.

i hope to see some more of your efforts on threadless soon.

OH MY GOD! It's amazing, almost as if I'm staring at a real audiotape. I can't believe it's been drawn in pixel-art. I'm amazed.

Well, nothing is perfect! Still even I can't front like I'm too modest, and agree that it's pretty damn close :D, at least technically :D
